The Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus, a subsidiary of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra, is  comprised of approximately 75 auditioned singers from Southeastern Connecticut and Rhode Island, and  range in age from high school students to octogenarians!  Under the direction of Chorus Director Mark Singleton, the ensemble  presents classical works by Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Mendelssohn and many other major composers, as well as works by contemporary composers such as John Rutter and Morten Lauridsen.


The ECSC performs a minimum of two concerts annually.  In 2013, the group joined forces with the Yale Symphony Orchestra and the Elm City Girls Chorus to perform a third concert: Gustav Mahler’s, Symphony No. 3 under the direction of Maestro Toshiyuki Shimada. The chorus will perform Mendelssohn’s Magnificat and John Rutter’s Gloria during their Annual Holiday Concert on Saturday, December 21, 2013 at 8:00pm in Harkness Chapel on the Connecticut College campus in New London, CT.  Tickets go on sale in November – please contact an ECSC singer or the ECSO office at 860.443.2876.  The chorus will also perform with the ECSO on May 3, 2014 as part of its regular subscription series.
